Like chefred112 said, it's REALLY all about your installer.... and what YOU want! Speak up FFS! You're paying for it [service] so you should have it EXACTLY how you want it.... regardless of what it is in life.

Anyway, as you can see in the pictures I posted, the tips are NOT perfectly centered. It took for thos pics, once I posted them, for me to notice. Since then, a slight tap here and a little pull there now has them sitting perfectly centered.

Thanks, I wanted to make sure before I had my guy do the same.

it certainly is a great exhaust. IIRC I paid about $480 from performance peddler a couple years ago and did the install in my driveway.

I have the cat back also and it is a perfect fit, top of the line system. My question to the OP and anyone with the Y pipe is about the welding process. The stock pipe is stainless, the Y pipe is stainless, what filler metal and type of welding process( mig, tig etc..) is used on the Y pipe and is any addition stainless pipe needed? I've never seen this part of the install addressed. Thanks for any help.

Excuse my total lack of exhaust knowledge, but where does this Y-pipe mount on the system?

Plus, I just ordered this kit for my truck along with a new dual exhaust bumper from Dodge. Conversion here I come!

The Y pipe is right near the cross member. Just look under your truck and you'll see it - passenger side. If you're still not sure, just follow the down pipes off the exhaust manifolds to where they merge together and flow into a single, larger pipe. That "merge" is the Y connection.

I peeked under my truck and saw what you're talking about. Nasty design Dodge. Hmm, another upgrade maybe...

I really cannot answer your question with any detail.

My exhaust guy installed mine at his shop and - as the pictures I posted portray - he welded everything on. I've had past issues with "bolt it on in your driveway over the weekend" catback systems so all my exhaust for the last few years have been welded on inside an exhaust shop.

I can find out the details if you really want to know. Just takes a quick phone call.

Reply in this thread and I'll answer here also.

Hey thanks for the offer. Yeah I'd like to know which welding process he used and the type of filler metal used if you can. Thanks, and your setup looks good. The guy did a good job.

You can weld stainless with a mig welder using stainless wire and pure argon gas for an uncontaminated weld process. not the match gas used for carbon steel
